Population Geography of Bulgaria, 1500- 1920: A Historical Spatial Analysis

Project description

The evolution of the Bulgarian population

Socioeconomic, political and environmental factors can affect the evolution of populations. The Bulgarian population was subject to such processes during the Ottoman and post-Ottoman periods. The EU-funded POPGEO_BG project will study the Bulgarian population between 1500 and 1920 to produce a description of the population dynamics based on geographical, spatial and temporal standards. It will explore the dimensions of migration and internal displacement, as well as the geographical, climatic and socio-political effects on the development of the Bulgarian population. The results will fill the knowledge gap as regards the country’s population geography and offer a methodology applicable in other South-eastern European areas.
